Apple’s latest beta version of iOS 13 comes with a much-needed improvement to lock screen authentication for those who now spend the majority of their time at work or outside wearing a face mask.

Now, instead of constantly attempting to identify your face using Face ID, a process that will not work while wearing a cloth or respiratory face mask to protect against COVID-19, iOS will now pull up the manual passcode option after one swipe up from the bottom of the screen.

The change — which should eventually arrive in the standard, non-beta iOS release — will be a welcome one for any iPhone user who no longer has a model with a physical home button. iOS 13.5 is expected to land in the coming weeks.
